Symphony of Science: The Story of Us – Children of Africa

(Youtube Direktscience, via Symphony of Science)

Die zehnte „Symphony of Science“, wie immer etwas cheesy und ich verstehe auch überhaupt garnicht, warum man einen Tag vor dem Ende des Space Shuttle-Programms dieses nicht zum Hauptthema macht, aber was erträgt man nicht alles im Namen der Wissenschaft, ey. „We are all Children of Africa“… I mean yeah, but… jeez… (not to say „cheese“ if you know what I mean.)

A musical celebration of humanity, its origins, and achievements, contrasted with a somber look at our environmentally destructive tendencies and deep similarities with other primates. Featuring Jacob Bronowski, Alice Roberts, Carolyn Porco, Jane Goodall, Robert Sapolsky, Neil deGrasse Tyson and David Attenborough.
